Cold Start Problem !!!

Hi all,

my troubles continue !!

It takes 3- 5 tries to get my car started after its been sitting for more than 4 hours ( cooled all the way down )

I have brought it to one place and they thought it was the Fuel Pump and changed it .. Of course that wasnt the problem and now they wont even answer their phone at the shop or call me back from the messages i have left.

Any ideas what it could be

Won't answer your phone calls??? What kind of a freaking shop is that??

Anyways bmw's are very weird (from what I have experianced so far). Mine I just changed the starter, it starts fine most of the time but sometimes I will shut the car off and then I will try to start it and it won't?? weird hey.

I also own a 91 legend and the car for the 4 years I have owned it has never NOT started, never had a problem in that department at all, but has a very harsh ride on bad roads, unlike my bimmer.

I wish I could help you dude, anyone else??
